With the amount of plastic bags dumped every year, it is futile to think of recycling right now. Even when disposed of properly, plastic bags are so lightweight and flimsy, they are easily picked up and carried by the wind. They escape from bins and landfills and end up littering the countryside, blowing down the street, flapping from trees, clogging drains, and making their way out to sea. Unfortunately, they may stay in the environment for hundreds of years, thereby causing harm for a very long time. Big oil and big soda industries must introduce alternative and biodegradable packaging methods for their products.
